these events happening not only here in san francisco but throughout the bay area. what do you have planned this morning? how many people are you expecting? >> the goal is to make it clear that we are educators because we care about students and we want to protect them and we're expecting a crowd of probably 40 or 50 people. we are here because we want to make sure that with the trump administration coming in that our children will be protected. we're worried about funding cuts and we're worried about the secretary for education. >> she had her confirmation hearing earlier this week. what are the specific things you are concerned about? >> we're worried about funding for public education. she has spoken in favor of vouchers and in favor of not providing federal funding for children with special needs and leaving it up to the states.
